Unpicking Power and Politics for Transformative Change: Towards Accountability for Health Equity

Future Health Systems

While “accountability” has become an increasingly popular buzzword in health systems debates and health service delivery, it has multiple – and contested – meanings.

From 19-21 July 2017, the IDS programme on “Accountability for Health Equity” held a workshop bringing together over 80 activists, researchers, public health practitioners and policy makers to examine critically the forces that shape accountability in health systems, from local to global levels. This workshop was conceived as an opportunity to convene key thinkers, activists and health practitioners in the emerging field of “accountability for health equity,” to push the boundaries of our collective knowledge and to strengthen our ability to mobilise for positive change.

The partners in convening this workshop, were the Unequal Voices project, Future Health Systems, the Open Society Foundations, the Impact Initiative and Health Systems Global.

This report is a record of the presentations and discussions that occurred over the course of workshop. It is by no means exhaustive, but aims to represent accurately the debates that emerged.
